Fifth Annual Golf Scholarship Fundraiser
Featured Happy Crowd, Door Prizes for All!

With 127 golfers and 14 helpers, the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico 2015 Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament will guarantee a record donation this December to the scholarship funds at Central New Mexico Community College and The University of New Mexico.  After dominating all three “nines” on a picture perfect day at the Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course,  golfers and golf helpers alike left the event with a door prize in hand.

Loyalty from the membership and its many supporters (both members and non-member companies alike) who believe in and support our educational initiative is the one constant factor in the annual event’s continued success.  Distinct contributions, both large and small, from countless companies and outstanding individuals personalized the gathering.

Again the trend to companies fielding multiple teams of golfers continued as they competed in the Championship Division to win the esteemed silver trophy.

Tables full of valuable door prizes mitigated even a bad day on the greens.  Power tools, a guitar, restaurant gift certificates, and loads of golf gear and much much more left with the athletes after the post-game buffet.

Mark Awe from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway/Johnson Controls raved on: “Wow!  Great people, wonderful grounds and clubhouse, food, and door prizes for all!  See you next year, that is for certain!”

Affordable Healthcare Act:
How are You and Your Employees Affected?

Whether you are a facility manager, building owner, or building engineer, it is important to understand the impact of the Affordable Care Act  on you and your business.  Penalties are assessed against individuals who have not procured healthcare insurance coverage in some form.  ACA is a sweeping, complex, and much-debated and challenging program which affects us all.

“The Affordable Health Care for America Act (or HR 3962)[1] was a bill that was crafted by the United States House of Representatives in November 2009. It never became law as originally drafted. At the encouragement of the Obama administration, the 111th Congress devoted much of its time to enacting reform of the United States' health care system. Known as the ‘House bill’, HR 3962 was the House of Representatives' chief legislative proposal during the health reform debate,” according to Wikipedia.

Join your fellow members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico on Wednesday, August 19th, at 7 am at the Garduno’s Uptown Restaurant for important information about this complex program.  Amber Carrillo with the Indian Health Service is an expert on the Affordable Care Act, and has made numerous presentations on the subject.  Her particular areas of expertise are how ACA affects tribal and federal healthcare facilities, as well as federal employees.  However, she has a wealth of knowledge on this topic and her expertise will enable her to provide resources for folks who need additional information.

Reservations are required and FIRST TIME FACILITY MANAGER are ALWAYS FREE.  Visit the website at to reserve YOUR space today and pay online with your credit card.  Don’t miss this important and informative topic.

Executive Director Column

We’re on a roll!

As your Executive Director, I am truly blessed with the support I receive from both members AND non-members of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico.

Fresh off the latest golf tournament, the upcoming Facility and Building Operations & Maintenance Show will also set records for booth sales and facility manager attendance.  The quality of the displays, the wide-ranging variety of products and services represented, and unprecedented effort by the supplier members to involve their present and future facility management associates will undoubtedly contribute to a productive, high energy event.  FAB O&M is Friday, October 30th, 2015 at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

The Halloween theme, free food, the nicely-appointed conference hall, and spirit of enterprise through cooperation and relationship building will set the stage for another memorable educational opportunity.   Don’t forget the cash bar!

Start to plan now to attend or exhibit at the ONLY trade show for facility managers and their suppliers in the state.

Money for this scholarship and another at UNM come from proceeds from the annual golf tournament and the FMA trade show which is held each fall.

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at
